It looks like Celtic fans are unhappy with one big Neil Lennon decision tonight.

Lennon looked set to start fit-again Leigh Griffiths in the visit of Hamilton Academical, with Odsonne Edouard out injured.

Instead, the Celtic boss elected to let winger Lewis Morgan spearhead the attack once again.

The 23-year-old wide man led the line in the Europa League win over Rennes last week, and opened the scoring for the Hoops on that occasion.

 

But the former St Mirren man looked nowhere near as prolific or dangerous tonight as Lennon's side ground out a dramatic 2-1 win against the Accies.

The fact that their best available striker didn't start the game added to the frustrations, and here's how they reacted to Morgan's display:

Marios Ogboe looked certain to have rescued a point for the visitors after Ryan Christie's first-half opener, with Hamilton netting a stoppage-time equaliser.

But captain fantastic Scott Brown came to Celtic's rescue and found a last-gasp winner to send Lennon's side two points above second-placed Rangers, who drew at Aberdeen.
